Yanks at Teheran Run News Service

itors understands Russian, but so fa-
miliar are they with announcer Yuri
Levitan's dramatic readings of spe-
cial orders of the day over Radio
Moscow that PGC troops frequently
hear of the progress of the Red Ar-
mies a full ten minutes before the
English rebroadcast by the BBC in
London.
One reason for the efficiency of
RNS is the newspaper background
of Sgt. Karshner, a former staff
member of Jackson, Mich., and
Fort Wayne, Ind., newspapers who
now is on leave from the Detroit
Associated Press Bureau. Karsh-
ner also did radio work while he
was stationed at Fort Custer, Mich-
igan.
Another reason is Tech. 5th Gr.
Charles Armand Hubbard, a Lon-
don-born American who reads, writes
and speaks Russia, French, Italian
and German and is the station's
"trouble-shooter" on foreign lang-
uage broadcasts. Hubbard, whose
mother lives at New Canaan, Conn.,
and his father in Nassau, the Baha-a
mas, joined AES Teheran in August,'
1943, transferring to the American
forces from the Intelligence Service
of the British Army.
Other members of the staff include
Tech. 4th Gr. Arno Adams of Cres-
cent, Okla., former managing editor

of the Guthrie, Okla., Daily Leader.
The RNS news reports are dis-
tributed on a mimeographed sheet
at PGC headquarters here and to
embassies and legations in Teher-
an; they are teletyped to other
military installations in the com-
mand and are broadcast by AES
Teheran and AES Ahwaz, both
short and long wave. Broadcasts
have been heard as far distant as
Sweden, India and Eritrea.
Those handling distribution of the
report include two Detroiters, Pfc.
Edward Moorhead, former Detroit
News employe, and Pfc. Howard Bent-
ley.
Before Maj. Gen. Donald H. Con-
nolly, former PGC commander, re-
turned to Washington for another
assignment, he commended AES
Teheran and the Radio News Service
for a "good job well done."

Settlement of

By '1 lAssociced Press
LANSING, March 29.- Governor
Kelly sought today to put the lid on
a boiling legislative controversy over
the question of granting state finan-
cial aid to local governments.
In the Senate, his aides sent word
he would be willing to appear before
a Republican caucus to explain his
views on the question of new or in-
creased taxes, while in the House the
Governor tried to keep a check rein
on a bloc of urban Republican repre-
sentatives who reportedly were threa-
tening to line up with Democrats and
force through their own state aid
ticket.
Kelly, in great detail, told news-
men and legislators at separate con-
ferences today his conception Qf how
the problem should be handled. He
proposed passing the state budget so
that the state's fiscal needs can be
determined first, then, granting any
surplus existing to the cities; then, if
additional taxes are necessary, revise
the intangible tax; finally, if still
more taxes are needed, pass a ten
per cent liquor tax.
Kelly angrily denied a charge by
Rep. George N. Higgins, Ferndale
Republican, that the Governor first
enocuraged him to secure Senate
approval of the liquor tax bill and
then had ordered the House to stall
it. He also went to great lengths to
deny reports of a "coalition" between
.house Repu~blicans and Democrats, or
that any legislative bloc had de-
manded his support.

ON THE WESTERN FRONT- The
latest humor harvest along the west-
ern front turns up a GI who lost
a tooth to enemy action-but didn't
get a purple heart-an MP whose
pocket was picked by a Nazi prisoner,
and a tanker who put all his eggs in
one basket.
Mrs. Ida Mae Kelly's son, who left
home at Holt, Mich., to become a
private first class in the 10th Armor-
ed Division, is out in front of the
1945 hardluck GI derby. German
shrapnel knocked out one of his
teeth. The medics informed him he
was ineligible for a Purple Heart
because the tooth was false.
What happens to policemen in
old jokes actually happened to Sgt.
William Fox Ridgewood, L. 1., who
was frisking a group of captured
Germans. Brother MP's called him
into the office and handed him his
wallet, right out of the pocket of a
slippery fingered Nazi in the pris-
onier cage.
Sgt. William Shake, West, Terre
Haute, Ind., was getting breakfast
when the call came to arms. He
put a dozen eggs in a basket, put the
basket on the back of his tank,

rumbled 25 mniles across Germany
and fired 60 rounds at fleeing German
tanks. Then he stopped to resume
getting breakfast. Not an egg was
broken.
Two treasure hunting Pfc's of
the Eighth Division spotted a heavy
iron safe in a pile of rubble. Lick-
ing their lips in anticipation, Mario
Chiriaco, Detroit, Mich., and Pfc.
Kaden, Elizabeth, N. J., attacked it
for ah hour with hammers, axes
and crowbars.
Inside the safe they found 12 neat-
ly stacked packages of K rations.
The 30th Infantxy Division boys
thought they had nabbed a Nazi gen-
eral, he was decked out in such high-

It may) not be funny to Paris
bartenders, but Brussels soon is to
become the largest rest center in
the European theater with the for-
mation of the Belgian leave section
commanded by Lt. Col. Frederick
Kraschel, Harlan, Iowa.
One of the attractions is a mam-
moth dancehall where a bar, com-
manded by Lt. Victor Spence, De-
troit, Mich., dispenses beer, soft
drinks and ice cream-with choco-
late sauce.
